Our first goal at 10.18 is to prevent child abuse and exploitation by educating adults to safeguard and protect the children in their lives. At the same time, we must not negate the need to be ready to recognize the subtle signs of child abuse —and respond immediately, appropriately, and effectively.

the Skills to Not Dismiss Concerns

The first and most crucial element to protecting kids is to resolve that you will respond quickly to any concerns. Listening to the nudges and keeping a Watchful Eye doesn’t mean you have to conclude about a person or situation. It does mean that you are deciding not to rule out those concerns and to take action to reduce risks and protect. Our human nature is to run and hide from hard things. We must never forget that an abused child cannot run or hide. They need a caring adult to carry the responsibility and fight for them.
